Yeah, the whole concept of connected servers is a bit weird in gio/gvfs
(as noted on It was a way to emulate
mounts in a stateless word. In gvfs we have *actual* mounts of network
shares too that will show up in the volume monitor (and thus
sidebars/file selectors, etc). However, we might still want some of the
features of connected servers, like a UI for the mount, and something
that survives a logout (and consequently the unmount of all network
shares in the session). This is all still sort of up in the air.

ftp is not really implemented at all in gvfs. All there is is a empty
shell of code. See
